Even in her 70’s she commented that "The happiest times in my life were the days when I was travelling with the band”.
With her lilting contralto voice, wholesome blonde beauty and glowing smile, she was a top box office draw and sensational recording artist, with many hit songs including “Que Sera Sera”, “A Secret Love”, “When I Fall In Love”, “Sentimental Journey”, “It’s Magic” and the everlasting jazz standard “Lullaby Of Broadway”
